I'm dept chair of fine and practical arts and finally won a battle of
ventilation last year for the ceramics teachers. We have many ceramics
sections and the program would have been crushed. We did the health and
safety committee, letters, everything imaginable and finally things
clicked. Do not give up. If worst comes to worse, allow the students to
work in clay but don't fire!Is that possible to show the possibilities.
I hope I'm not rambling, but I'm tired and have my IBM computer fired up
to do lesson plans while the Mac does the email trail. GOOD LUCK AND
Protect your lungs and those of your students. Fran
P>S> I don't teach ceramics but felt I was getting a good blast from next
door with the kiln problems.
